New Year, New You!

2013 has been a busy year and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2014!

As we say goodbye to the current year, I wanted to thank my loyal patients for your support and wish you all a wonderful 2014. Our office building has seen a major construction project this past year (still unfinished), and we used the opportunity to perform a complete remodel of our office. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop in for a cup of freshly brewed coffee and take a quick tour of our gorgeous new facility!

What else happened in 2013?

Everything! We moved a step closer to the Holy Grail of plastic surgery.

This year saw the development of what may be the single most revolutionary procedure for rejuvenating aging skin and soft tissue. Not by pulling, freezing, burning or lasering, but truly repairing and restoring damaged skin. We call it Nano Stem Serum, and this is how it works:

I remain a leading edge surgeon and advocate for Natural Fat Transfer, where we use natural adipose (fat) tissue to fill lines and soften the thinning face as it ages. For reference, you can hear me talk about this in multiple short videos on my website. We now take the remaining, purified fat and gently process it to extract stem cells from the tissue and concentrate them into a smooth liquid. This serum is thin enough to be injected directly into damaged skin.

We can now make skin more healthy by placing growth factors and reparative stem cells exactly where we want them - in the skin! Injected into crows’ feet, upper lips lines and crepey skin, we see thickening and a smoother appearance. In the décolletage, we see softening and disappearance of wrinkles. We are also studying the effect of placing Nano Stem Serum into the lower eyelid skin for improvement of dark circles and skin discoloration.

Please feel free to call our office for any additional information we might be able to provide, and wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year!

What is a Plastic Surgeon?

Dr. Koplin explains the Greek origins of the word plastic, relating it to his job as a plastic surgeon or sculpting shape and form in the body. Full transcript below.


Well what is a plastic surgeon, really? The word is actually from Greek plastikos, which means to form or to mold or to give shape to something. Think of Dustin Hoffman in the graduate and he’s got this one word he says: plastics. What they mean is that you can take something that’s liquid, you put it in a form, almost like an ice cube, and when it dries, when it’s finished, it has shape to it. That’s really what plastic surgery does. That’s what we do as plastic surgeons. It’s not that we open a drawer and take something out made out of plastic and put it into someone’s chin or put it into someone’s body, but it’s that we give the shape and the form and the molding in the way that the person desires. I hope that that answers the question. It’s a pleasure talking to you. I’m Dr. Lawrence Koplin.
